We expect Prada’s Spring/Summer 2019 show to be a must-see this Fashion Week. The heritage brand helmed by longtime designer Miuccia Prada has seen a revival lately. Not only has it dropped hyped sneakers (the Cloudbust and Nylon Tech Fly models in particular), Prada has quickly become the go-to brand for printed shirts and Instagram-ready items (including the re-release of hip-hop’s favorite shirt).
Now, with the revival of Prada Sport, we predict 2018 will be a massive year for the brand. Below you can find everything we know about the Prada SS19 show so far. Check back for updates as they come in.

Prada’s SS19 show will be on Sunday, June 17 at Milan Fashion Week Men’s. It will start at 6 p.m. local time (12 p.m. EST).
Milan Fashion Week has been in decline in recent years, with the more hyped labels often opting to show in New York, Paris, or London. However, Prada has stayed loyal to its home city and has been credited recently with spearheading a Milanese revival.
Prada regularly live-streams its fashion shows on its website. If you missed them, you can catch the brand’s FW18 and SS18 shows along with its recent SS19 Resort collection on the site. Although the SS19 menswear page isn’t live yet, Prada should be updating the website closer to the date. Alternatively, check back here, as we’ll be updating this page as new information emerges.
Despite the brand waning from prominence over the last few seasons, Miuccia Prada remains one of the greatest designers of our time, so we know to expect something big from Prada’s SS19 show. There haven’t been any teasers as to what direction Prada will go this season and the label’s inspirations can vary widely. For instance, the brand’s FW18 womenswear show was inspired by sci-fi dystopias and its SS18 menswear outing featured very of-the-moment male rompers.
That said, with the company announcing the return of its much-loved Prada Sport label earlier this year, it’s safe to assume we’ll be seeing some sports-inspired looks. Last season, Prada’s FW18 menswear line was filled with retro sportswear, ’90s bucket hats, and lots of nylon, so we expect similar pieces to crop up for summer.
